    So do I piss the wife off or just keep quiet?

    Ugh. Wife ordered me a Christmas present the other day and on one hand I truly appreciate the gesture, but on the other it's not really what I wanted.
    I intended to order a 50qt Dometic Fridge/Freezer but she's a researcher and she went online and after she was done, ended up buying a Costway brand.
    Shit. So I know nothing about this brand but the reviews look ok. Whaddya do? Keep it and try it out or return it and get the Dometic. I'm leaning
    towards keeping it for peace sake, but I don't want a piece of junk either....

    That's a tough one...it is a rather large expenditure...and the money is both of yours (I assume)...if it can be returned without much financial penalty, I'd consider sending it back.

    I won't let my wife buy me anything...I've got a dozen floral board shorts in my drawer I've never worn...

    Keep the receipt. Send it back if it doesn’t work well.

    Come up with some technical reason why the Dometic is really the only possibility for your needs. Unique dimensions, etc.

    Or have one of your friends start a thread saying his Costway fridge caught on fire...I'm sure several other members will contribute...then show your wife the thread...

    That is tough. If it was me I would be keeping it and give it a try, unless it is flat out cheaply made or obviously won't fit the need.

    Be honest... she’ll tell you how it’s no big deal and she wants you to be happy.... then buy her some jewelry because it’s a Lie... Lol

    Keep it and give it a try. If it works, money saved. If it doesn’t work, upgrade later. Holidays are stressful enough. You always have time to argue later about a fridge not working and warm beer and spoiled cold cuts.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
